WSBK Imola, Italy: Guintoli ruled out after high side crash

Sylvain Guintoli has been ruled out of taking part in race one at Imola after suffering a heavy high side crash during qualifying
Sylvain Guintoli has been ruled out of taking part in race one at Imola after suffering a heavy high side crash during Superpole two qualifying and is a big doubt to be fit enough for Sunday's race two.

On his second flying lap in the pole position shootout the Crescent Pata Yamaha rider was thrown into a nasty-looking high side at the exit of Variante Alta which forced a red flag stoppage to the session. The French rider required medical attention trackside before being taken to hospital in an ambulance.

World Superbike medical officials have confirmed Guintoli is conscious but will not take part in Saturday's race one at Imola due to his injuries. The extent of the French rider's injuries have not been confirmed but he is already a huge doubt for Sunday's second race.
